Great Migrations Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Great Migrations migrates onto Blu-ray with an astoundingly clear and sharp AVC encoded transfer in 1080i and 1.78:1. National Geographic has always done fine Blu-ray work, but this series sets the bar considerably higher than it has ever been, especially for an interlaced source. In fact, this special is simply breathtakingly beautiful almost all of the time. Colors are ravishingly robust and stunningly saturated, depth of field seems to go on for miles and miles, and the sharpness and clarity of fine detail is nothing short of amazing. Close-ups of crab legs reveal every splotch and bump on the crustaceans' shells. A walrus' whiskers glint like fine threads against a setting sun. Underneath the water, various weird looking marine life swim right up to the camera so that you can actually see inside some of the more translucent species. Great Migrations is a panoply of beautiful images (and, truth be told, more than a few ghastly ones, especially in the death sequences), and this Blu-ray presents it all in near picture perfect detail. In fact I would say this is easily the best looking 1080i presentation I've personally ever seen on Blu-ray.


Great Migrations Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

For the first time since I've been reviewing National Geographic titles (and that's been quite a while), NatGeo finally steps fully up to the hi-def sonic plate and gives the consumer a good, if sometimes subtle, lossless surround track, in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. Baldwin's narration is of course anchored pretty steadily in the front channels, but both the very inviting underscore and a wealth of ambient sounds spill into the surrounds. Everything from the completely strange bleats of zebras (which I'm not sure I've ever heard before) to the plaintive wail of a wildebeest calf being pulled under the water by a crocodile is presented with absolute clarity and excellent directionality. Even the most subtle sounds, like the flapping of monarch butterfly or bat wings, are offered with incredibly excellent fidelity. This isn't a completely bombastic soundtrack, and in fact I'm actually grateful that NatGeo stayed away from the A&E penchant toward nonstop LFE, so those looking for a knock your socks off sonic experience may be a tad disappointed here. While this may be "kinder and gentler," it's no less immersive and excellently recorded, and it, like the image quality, sets the bar at a new height for NatGeo releases in particular, and nature documentaries in general.
